Today, we’re going to run you through a few of the more common Korean honorifics that you’re going to hear that may seem like a totally different language at first (especially if you’re a beginner!).

Then, we’ll give you some comparisons so you know how to navigate these tricky language traps.

Korea should Not Overreact like the West did




This is a re-print, in English, of an editorial I wrote last month in the Busan Daily newspaper. Here is that Korean version.

I saved my soul by coming to Korea

Dramatic as it may sound, it is true. I used to regard my tenure here as a “time-out” of sorts. A “time-out” out of the grind of life in the United States that seems to befall all who are partaking in the race, rich and poor alike. “I’ll get to live in a Buddhist nation, (albeit heavily capitalistic as well – as I write this two Buddhist monks just walked into the Starbucks I’m at, judge away but I swear by Buddha its true)” I fantasized. Experience the collectivism of East Asian culture, which has been such a delight (I know this is a generalization, and I don’t give a damn…it’s a good one). “I’ll get to travel deep into Asia, India, Nepal, Thailand, THAILAND anywhere.”


Stuff I Did in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Here’s what I did during my short stint in KL. (Other than take the LSAT, haha.)

 

  1. KUALA LUMPUR BIRD PARK, KL Bird Park, 920, Jalan Cenderawasih, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
    1. Entrance fee was about 50 ringgits, or $13 USD. The park was really big, and going there was way more fun than I had expected. There’s something majestic about being surrounded by giant, weird birds.  Highlight of the trip was the emus, by far. Oh, and the monkeys were cute.
